Zen Mind, Beginners Mind

When you do something, you should burn yourself up completely, like a good bonfire, leaving no trace of yourself.

I went to Trolltunga. Of course I posed nude.

As we approach Autumn the fly agaric is one of the most obvious fungi pushing through.  Always lovely to see.  These ones are in the restaurant car park at Beecraigs Country Park.

my heart
we burned it
in the fireplace
we knew
it would ruin
everything

wednesdayshambles:

when I told you
I no longer
loved you
you flapped around
mouth gaping
like a fish
who had forgotten
the importance of
water.

I couldn’t be
your ocean
my waves too
treacherous
to keep you floating
in weightlessness.

it is cold
at night
but at least
I am
free.

bargain with the
dead
withdraw from the race

wednesdayshambles:

you live
in between
emptiness and shame
straddling the line
that was drawn
around the corpse
of another lover
shot dead
in their prime

unwilling to
clean up
the stains you’ve
made
on
the pavement
until the killing floor
is littered with
bodies
and you are
satisfied

the blood looks
shiny and wet
on your hands

wednesdayshambles:

if I thought
there was
a shovel large enough
to knock some sense
into that head of yours

I’d more than likely
bludgeon you
to death
trying to make sure
the sense stuck

at least the shovel
would serve
a dual purpose
